First, you need to fold the top corner (doesn't matter what side you do first) down till you stop about 3/4 of the length of the paper. Do the same with the other corner until you get two nice creases.


Step 3: Fold the two creases in

Next, you need to fold the two creases in. If you don't know what I'm talking about than look at the picture.

After that you will need to pull the ends of the triangle you just made up to the top of the triangle. Do this to both ends.

Step 4: The little squares

Now we take the little triangles we just made and pull the sides of it out and push it down to make a square. Do this to both triangles.

After you do that, take the little ed flap of the square and push it to the corner. Do this to both squares.

Step 5: Poke the top through

Next you need to take the little triangle in between the two other triangles (the triangles that used to be squares) and fold it up.

Then, you need to push the top point of the whole thing and fold it under the flap we just made.
